GEORGE’S, Grenada, CMC – The Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) Monday night inducted the late Guyanese broadcaster, Terry Holder, and Montserratian, Rose Willock, into its Hall of Fame.
Holder, who died in January last year, was recognized as being instrumental to the birth of the region’s first ever television news exchange, “Caribvision” as well as the regional television magazine, “Caribscope”.
Holder also served as CBU president, and secretary general.
Willock, a fomer manager of the now defunct Radio Antilles in Montserrat, was recognised for her service to the region, especially in building capacity for emergency broadcasting.
Editor Emeritus of the Barbados Nation Newspaper, Harold Hoyte noted that Willock’s career had been marked by her time as Head of the English Service of Radio Antilles in the aftermath of the devastation by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, as well as her recognition on the Queen’s honours lists in 1986 and 1996 with an MBE and an OBE respectively.
“These latest additions to the CBU Hall of Fame bring the total number of awardees to fourteen,” the CBU said in a brief statement.
